Not to mention last year at 4-3 w/the lions on schedule this team looked at least headed to enter the late part of season w/playoff possibilities.

In two of the last three seasons, this team has been off to a "good" start, plagued by the same issues (mainly offense). I'd like to see a team that no longer has these issues, mainly on offense...however I think it is going to take a while for this to happen.

Who needs respect when you have won as much as we have and I feel will go on to do in the future.
Do you really think the New England Patriots fans "hate on us" because the Redskins' franchise has a higher dollar value than does the Pats' franchise?

Would you really trade three Super Bowl championships in a decade for a lower franchise value on the Redskins? I doubt any Patriots' fans or Steelers' fans or Packers' fans would make that trade.

Seriously. I don't think many people are jealous of our franchises value. The only people that might be jealous are small market teams looking at how much the Skins can spend on signing bonus's and coaches, but when they look at our record and how much fans have to pay to attend games any sense of jealously probably goes away.

The only time I've enjoyed the net value thing is when my friends thought I was crazy for saying that the Redskins were among the 5 most valuable sport franchises world wide, and way even be in the top 2, to which they replied that there was NO WAY the Skins were more valuable then teams like Real, Barca, Chelsea, Bayren, Arsenel. As well as teams like the Yankees, Lakers, Red Sox, Patriots, etc.

It was pretty shocking to considering that teams like Real Madrid had paid 100 million Euros just to acquire the rights to a player. Never mind paying them to play, just the right to sign them to a contract.

A hollow victory if there ever was one.

The skins are a bottom feeder team and have been for years. I hate to say it but it's true folks. Yeah we have made the playoffs a couple times in the DS era but honestly it's been a nightmare as a skins fan.

Last I checked Real Madrid was one of the worst managed team in sports. I think they were 300 million dollars in dept and nearly went bankrupt. Their management makes Danny look timid.

I agree 100 percent! That just shows you what kind of fan base the Skins have.

IT IS WHAT IT IS...........: Mark May Isn't a Fan of an Ex-Redskin GM's Evaluation Skills

This is the main reason we were ranked so low.

o.0




I feel the Redskins are pretty bad (even though we are headed in the right direction), but I think the Bengals and Raiders are much worse off than we are. No way those teams should be ranked above us. Some other teams I feel should be below us.

Pittsburgh Pirates
Kansas City Royals
Milwaukee Brewers
LA Clippers
NY Mets
NY Knicks

Even more troubling, perhaps, was the result of the ESPN fan survey, asking fans to rate on a scale of 1-5 how their commitment to their favorite team had changed in recent years. The Redskins finished tied with the Kings for 116th in that category. Amazing!!
